What electric motor / battery / prop combo would you recommend for this plane. I want to pull out of a hover with authority.

Motor: Motrolfly DM-4320-450 with 18x8 (Xoar, Mejzlik, Falcon, or other well designed prop)

ESC: HobbyWing Platinum 100 or ZTW Gecko 125

I'm assuming you want to run 6S 5000, right?

6s would be nice...but not required. Just want to be sure there is plenty of power on tap.

You could go 12S with 3300maH packs and get a special wind Motrolfly 4330 with 216 kV. I don't know how he does the kV on those motors so there might be a range for the HV set ups. ESC's for that could be be a Hobbywing 70 HV or any of the HV YEP's for the budget minded.

I'm actually thinking about getting the new AJ 73" Laser 230 and an 8S set is recommended but I'm thinking about either doing a 6S2P 6600maH set up with 2 3300 packs of a 12S 3300maH set up so that I can use the packs in a 600 electric heli if I ever get one. If I go that route, I'm going to put one of these Motrolfly motors in it with a Hobbywing, ZTW Gecko, or YEP ESC in it.

From the reviews it looks like it should have enough power. I would go for it!

I don't think that one has enough power. It's a 60 size equivalent whereas the Turnigy is probably more like a 1.20-1.60. From the reviews, it seems the ratings on the Turnigy are under what it's really capable of.

Have you looked at the Tacon Bigfoot series?

They seem to get some pretty good reviews

I've had so-so results from Suppo motors. I've had more than one that was unbalanced enough that I couldn't run it at full throttle without it sounding like a glow motor from the vibrations (with or without prop!). For the money, I'd say go for the Turnigy. I'm pretty impressed with the ones I've tried.
